George Hults of Ocean Springs passed away on April 20, 2024.

George was born in Brooklyn, New York on August 29, 1931. He was an inspiration to everyone that he met, because of his charismatic personality, endless jokes, and his intensely active lifestyle.

As a young man, he competed in dance roller-skating competitions and calf roping. He was inducted into the US Army and served 2 years. He was a master carpenter for most of his life and worked in Key West, Florida for 45 years until he and his wife moved to Mississippi in 2015. He and his wife spent much time traveling and camping all over Europe and the US. He spent his time as an avid windsurfer, volleyball player, bocce player, shuffleboard champion, and expert pickleball player. He continued playing pickleball until he was 91 years old. Recently he discovered a new love for drawing and painting.

His wife survives him– Roberta Hults; his children– Bonnie Haar and Scott Hults; his stepdaughters– Shannon Cartella (husband, Jim Cartella) and Sydney Ming (husband, Robert Ming); as well as his seven grandchildren, Amy Hults, Steven Haar, Connor Haar (wife, Samatha Haar), Mackenzie Haar, Lillian Ming, Samuel Ming, and John Paul Cartella.
